From A to Z: Letter Y

letter Y: Color + Kindness

Letter Y is for Jesus loves YOU!

Letter Y is one of the simplest truths of all of them—but isn’t also one of the best? Of course, I want my kids to know all kinds of good truth about God. I want them to know that He rescues them, that He gives us grace, and that He is our helper. But, in the end, if the only thing they remember or take to heart is that Jesus loves them—I’d be fine with that!

letter Y: Buttermilk Chalk hearts

The activity for this lesson is so easy, but it kept little hands scribbling for a long while, and it gave us lots of time to talk about how much God loves them (and how much we do too!).


As you sing, “Jesus Loves Me,” color hearts, and read the story of how Jesus welcomed the children, I hope that it reminds you and your kiddos of the depth of love that Jesus has for us. It may be a simple truth—but is truly is life-changing if we really, really believe it!

Have a good one friends!


ps. we are almost to the end! But if you’d like to grab the whole A-Z pack + some extras, check it out in the shop :) 

From A to Z: Letter X


Letter X, you were a bit of a pickle. How many words can you find in the Bible that start with X. Well, a few. But I couldn’t quite figure out how to have Xerxes a part of a Bible truth. Ha! So, I cheated a bit and decided that Follow Jesus’ Example would work—because it is such an important truth! Jesus lived the perfect life, obeyed God, loved others, taught others, and gave his life up; he is truly the best example to follow.

refection painting

Of all the hands-on art activities, this activity was my probably my favorite. Not only did the boys enjoy painting, but I did too. It was so simple, yet the activity illustrates that even though we can’t be a perfect copy of Jesus, we can still reflect him.

As you read the story of how Jesus washed his disciples’ feet and talk about how Jesus led by example, you can spark up a conversation or ask questions about how we can reflect Jesus.


Don’t be afraid to dig into the paints with your kiddos on this one too :)

ps. one of my favorite tips is to use a painter drop cloth as a tablecloth during messy art projects. It’s makes clean up super easy!

Have a good one!

Bible Truths from A-Z

In February (was it really that long ago!?), I started sharing a free Bible and letter learning resource with you all.

We are almost to the end—just three more letter (X, Y, Z)! I’ve absolutely loved creating, playing, and enjoying all of the resources right alongside you. It’s definitely been a lot of work behind the scenes—but good and fun work :)

verse and alphabet cards

We’ve made rainbows and lion masks, whipped up homemade play dough, and watched foam explode out a bottle. We’ve dotted and glued letters, marched around “Jericho,” sang lots of songs, and read so many Bible stories.

Over the last few months, I’ve been tidying up and revamping a lot of the resources that you’ll find for free on the blog into a more comprehensive (and might I say, cuter!) full A-Z packet for you. If you get tired of individually downloading each lesson or are looking for some extra add-ons, then purchasing this packet might be a good fit for you. Don’t worry—everything that is currently free on the blog will stay free :)


If you are deciding if it’s worth it to buy it rather than use the free version, here’s a breakdown of the basic differences:

The free version on blog includes:

  • The alphabet letter

  • Activity page

  • Simple verse cards

  • Interact and ask page

  • Letter Art

The full bundle available for purchase includes:

  • The alphabet letters

  • Alphabet Bible truth cards with read and ask cards

  • Revamped activity pages (original illustrations and fun colors!)

  • The lookbook—a photo lookbook that gives you ideas, inspiration, and examples of how families have used the resources

  • Letter Art

  • Verse cards (these are a different format and more versatile than the ones on the blog)

  • The guide—includes a supply list, extra ideas, and a quick reading guide

  • The purchase also provides 15 meals through Feed my Starving Children

Whether you continue to work through the free resources on the blog or purchase the comprehensive packet, I hope that you enjoy and are encouraged by them! It’s been an absolute joy to create and do :)

Have a good one, friends!


ps. stay tuned for the last three letters :)

From A to Z: Letter W

worship God with your whole heart

One thing I love is the diversity of worship between cultures, languages, churches, and individuals. When I lived in Guatemala for a short bit, I loved going to church and hearing and singing songs in a different language than my own. Often, the Spanish language would communicate something that English couldn’t quite express. It was truly beautiful! But worship isn’t just singing or music—it can be glorifying God through how we work, our creativity, the way we serve our families, etc.

This W lesson is about Worshipping God with our whole heart.

I’m not going to lie—this lesson was loud! But because it was loud, my boys seemed especially fond of the hands-on activity.

Letter W: Color and Kindness

This lesson includes reading about David worshipping God, making an instrument, and getting to make lots of noise and worship God. It definitely opens the door to discussing why we worship God and ways to worship Him (that is—if you can talk above the shaking of beans! Ha!)


Go have fun being loud and worshipping God!

Have a good one, friends!


From A to Z: Letter V

When I was five or sixish, I remember hearing the verse about how God knows the number of hairs on my head and finding it completely unfathomable. How was this even possible? I started counting the hairs and gave up at around 20. 

Yet, I think about the little, tiny, intimate details I know about my children because I love and adore them. You know—those details that seem to be only shared between me and them.

I find it crazy that the God of the universe knows such intimate details about me. I am Valuable to God. And we get to share this beautiful truth with our kiddos—that God values them in the deepest ways.

bird feeder

The letter V lesson was a fun one for my boys—they enjoyed making their own bird feeders and hoping to see birdies get to snack on the seeds they left out for them.

We also had the chance to talk about how God values and takes care of us :)


I hope you enjoy this lesson and that you and your kiddos are reminded of how valued and loved by God you are!

Have a good one!
